Rocket League Now Has Xbox One & PS4 Crossplay Ready To Go!

Awaiting Sony's permission

Everyone’s favourite alternate football game, Rocket League, is ready for cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4, developer Psyonix has revealed. All they need now is the ‘go-ahead’ from Sony.

Speaking with IGN, Psyonix Vice President Jeremy Dunham stated,

“Right now, we’re literally at the point where all we need is the go-ahead on the Sony side and we can, in less than a business day, turn it on and have it up and working no problem. It’d literally take a few hours to propagate throughout the whole world, so really we’re just waiting on the permission to do so.”

Although Microsoft has given permission for cross-play, Dunham was quick to dispell any rumours of stubbornness from Sony by pointing out any number of reasons as to why there was a delay on their end.

“Sony’s such a big company that I’m sure it takes a while for them to figure out what it is that the roadblocks are, what sort of issues they might run into with other titles, any number of things that I can’t even begin to speculate on. We definitely ask them for updates often, and we’re still very confident that they’re eventually going to open those doors and welcome us in, but we also are really understanding that it’s going to take a while especially given all the ramifications of everything. It was just as much of a surprise to them as I think the rest of the world when Microsoft said that they would do it.”

Dunham then went on to explain that Blizzard were also interested in cross-platform play with hit FPS Overwatch and that the interest and vocalisation from fans could help that become a reality.

 “The more communities that get behind it, the more likely it is that it’ll happen. We think that the gaming community as a whole is the final voice in this – it’s what they want which will determine where we go eventually.”

Cross-platform play is already available between PC & Xbox One and PC & Playstation, but the consoles are currently keeping their distance. Hopefully, this will mark a change in direction for Microsoft and Sony and more third party titles will allow gamers to play together in one space, no matter the console they own.
